BABES IN BLOGLAND COLLABORATION – Christmas Recipes

 

 

Welcome back to Babes in Blogland Collaboration Day 15. Today’s theme is about Christmas Recipes and I have put posts linking to Hello Kaily, Curly Spring Blossom and Stash Matters, for you to check their posts. With holidays SO CLOSE, this is a very important topic for me and I’m so happy to be here with all of you.

In this post, instead of talking about Christmas recipe that many of you already have the recipes handed down from generations. I’ll be sharing a recipe that only a handful would appreciate. Yes, I’m referring to FRUITCAKE!

Fruitcake Is Worst Holiday Gift to Receive according to SURVEY!

“The worst Christmas gift is fruitcake,” cracked Johnny Carson on the Tonight Show. “There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other, year after year.” it seems that it’s still under circulation back since Roman’s time. lol!

You either love fruitcake or you hate it.

Some of you may raise the question, “Does anyone really eat fruitcake? Well, the answer to that question is less than one-third of the people surveyed admit to eating it, except in the South. It seems Southerners are a bit fonder of fruitcake. And, “If you don’t like it, use it as a doorstop”, toss it, give it away or feed to the birds in spring.

I personally like fruit cake during the holiday.A tradition to have a fruit cake somehow. Strangely enough, I’ve never received fruit cake as a gift which is good in a way since I prefer to buy them from the store or make my own with extra rum on it. At least I know it comes straight from the bakery store, hahaha!

So, for those of you who truly enjoy this traditional Christmas treat, I hope you’ll try this recipe for a delicious and fruity FRUIT CAKE and STOUT. You can replace stout to rum of your choice. Click the link here for Martha Stewart ‘s recipe. The bottom square block in the picture it is.

And for those of you who hate fruitcake, sit back, have a double shot of eggnog, or vodka and hope Aunt Millie doesn’t give you another doorstop this year.

So, who wants to receive a fruit cake as a Holiday gift this year? If you do, check carefully for you never know, you might received one stale fruit cake back in Roman’s time. ;D

Remember ’tis the season to be jolly, fa la la la la… la la la la!

Here are the links to other BABES IN BLOGLAND friends where they share their Christmas Special Recipes!

Spice It Up With Cat Eyeliner Look

Wanna spice up some eye makeup look with a cat liner look. I’ve some simple and easy steps that anyone can do. Okay, I’m not a master beauty guru but here is what I learned throughout my blogging experience.

Here’s how … a step-by-step tutorial:

  • I’m using the Liquid Eyeliner by LA Colors in Black. 

cat eye liner

  • Apply eyeshadow on lid. Here I used a very light shade in Bare by LA Colors. Start lining from center of lid towards the outer corner, stop after drawing 1/2 ” or so- as shown.
  • Continue to line straight out. Make sure the end doesn’t exceed the end of your eyebrow tail.

cat eye liner step 1

  • Now join the end of the line to the outer end of your eye.
  • Line the rest of your eye starting from center to the inner corner. Try to make it thinner as it goes in.

  • Time to fill inside the lines now& tightline the inner part of your eye now, so there’s no visible gaps.

cat eye liner step 3

  • DONE!

cat eye liner step 4

Only for this look did I applied eyeliner before eyeshadows. I’m using the Wet n’ Wild Color Icons 8-pan eyeshadow palette in Comfort Zone. I used the green and brown shadows which works magnificently. Up it with the beige color as highlighter. Touch up with mascara and I’m really to face the world!

Easy right! Go and try it now and let me know what’s your experience like. Good luck!

Let me know if this cat eyeliner makeup tutorial is helpful? What’s your tips or tricks to do your cat eyeliner? Leave your comments below, for I love to read them.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read. Stay beautiful!

Ways To Wear Purple This Fall

It’s no secret that purple is one of my all-time favorite colors. I have a fair share of purple eyeshadows in my collection and I love to share talking about it in this post. Can anyone tell me if you have more purple products than most people have neutrals? I want to know. Are purples kind of like Pokémon for you, gotta collect ‘em all!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Eyeshadow

I love wearing purple eyeshadow on occasion! And when I do, I try to go all the way out with it. Purple is associated with royalty, wealth and power for centuries since Queen Elizabeth 1 reign.

Whether it’s a bright purple on the lid or a deeper purple in the crease, I love how purple looks as eyeshadow. Duochrome shades are definitely the best, since they’re multi-dimensional. Lighter iridescent purples are great to pop at the inner corner to highlight and open up the eyes. Purple mattes are perfect in the crease for contouring the eyes. I love wearing purple eyeshadow, it is super flattering on my brown eyes!

Eyeliner

Purple is perfect for eyeliner too! My favorite purple eyeliner is the Gem Eye Pencil in Ultra Orchid by Starlooks, 24/7 Urban Decay Glide-On Eye Pencil from the purple colors of Vice to Empire and NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner in Bourbon Street. These also make great colored bases for eyeshadows too, to help intensify an eyeshadow color. They’re great for layering.

instain the balm

Blushes

Purple blushes can be very intimidating. The Balm has the right plum shade that’s the most flattering, plumish purple blush that I’ve ever tried is the Instain Staining Blush in Pinstripe. For a softer pinky purple blush, try Makeup Geek Secret Admirer. Or go bold with a deep violet blush like Fyrinnae Royalty.

ciate nail polish

Nail Polish

There are so many amazing purple nail polishes out there that it’s hard to pick a favorite. My daughter bought me this Ciate Haute House Collection from Sephora Malaysia. I’ll be doing a full review for the fall nail polish hopefully next week.

What’s your favorite way to wear purple? Don’t forget o leave your comments down below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

sisterhoodaward

I was nominated by Rhia from RCubed for this Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. It has been awhile since I last did my award and I’m excited to answer the question posted by her. If you aren’t following her yet, you really should as she is one of the sweetest bloggers that you will meet! I’ll put her link down below.

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site.
  • Put the award logo on your blog
  • Answer the 10 questions the blogger has sent you.
  • Create 10 new questions for nominees to answer
  • Nominate 10 bloggers and notify them

Here are the questions Rhia asked me:

1. What piece of clothing or accessory is essential to any outfit you wear? A pair of nice comfortable shoes is all I need to go with my outfit. I love it simple but yet elegant, if that make sense.  

2. Do you often wear your hair down or up? In summer, I love to updo my hair into a ponytail or a bun! 

3. What’s the last movie you watched in a theater? Disney movie “Cinderella” 

4. If you could spend a day with any celebrity, living or deceased, who would you pick? I don’t mind any celebrity but definitely he/she must be definitely alive and kicking, hahaha! 

5. When a new beauty trend happens, do you usually take part in it? I tried to follow the latest trends to share them with my friends here in my blog.

6. What’s your current favorite beauty brand? Lately, I’m obsessed with BH Cosmetics, Joe Fresh and Quo Cosmetics but my go to buddies are the Balm, UD, NYX, Lorac and Wet n Wild ❤ 

7. Besides blogging, what do you like to do in your spare time? Hmm… I love to read, spending quality time with my family, watching mystery movies and cook. 

8. Toilet paper. Are you on team over or team under (for further clarification, how would you position it on the holder)? I would say a team over. This may be TMI, but I want the pretty embossed side to be facing me and softer side folded out. 

9. Favorite TV show? Nova, Secret of the Death (documentary) 

10. Summer will be coming to a close within the next month. Are you sad to see it go, or are you over it and looking forward to a new season? With the heat I’m more than over with this summer. Can’t wait till Fall season though. I’m strange in the sense that I have to admit that I miss the cold weather hahaha!

I wanted to thank RCubed for this nomination and you can go to her blog to read her version. As for me, I’ll be nominating 5 nominees instead of 10 for this award. So, here are my five nominees :- They’re …
